Abstract
The technique for measuring wave front distortions in optical elements by the shadow method is developed. Shadow pictures obtained for mutually perpendicular orientations of the Foucault knife-edge are the distributions of components of the gradient of the function describing the wave front relief, so that its shape can be restored by means of integration. An example of measurements of wave front distortions in large-scale optical KDP crystal elements employing the IAB 451 device is given.
